Does it matter how often or for what reason the Earth's climate goes through extreme changes even for a short period of time... if the end result is possibly mass and/or human extinction?
Of course it matters if you want to suggest that those extreme changes are largely caused by man or that we somehow have the ability to control all of this.

That notion is quite obviously bogus as soon as you consider that 99% of species over time have already become extinct with little to no involvement from man made climate change.

Human extinction doesn't matter as long as we had little to no involvement in the climate change that causes it...... got it.


If your house catches on fire I bet you'll also happily sit in it and burn, arguing with anyone who tries to rescue you that, "You can't prove I caused the fire - so why should I do anything about it."

We will cause our own extinction and it won't be because of climate change...

Aside from that, your post makes absolutely no sense and your analogy is worse.
